"Wayne Hudsons Australian Religious Thought brings together much of this scholarship, further challenging the default national imaginary in an engaging and learned study. It is a work of both synthesis and original argument which showcases the richness and diversity of religious thought in Australia and its far from insignificant role in shaping institutions and civic life." - Ian Tregenza, Australian Journal of Politics and History: Vol. 62, Number 3, 2016.
